Giselle is now available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-ray from the Royal Opera House Shop, online and in person.

Pre-ordering your copy online means that you’ll receive a discount.

Peter Wright’s production, based on Marius Petipa’s classic version of the ballet, features Natalia Osipova as Giselle – in her first role as a Principal with The Royal Ballet – and Carlos Acosta as Albrecht.

Considered by many to be the greatest of all Romantic ballets, Giselle is a tale of betrayal, enduring love and supernatural forces. The ballet tells the story of a young peasant girl who falls in love with a villager, but her discovery of his noble identity has devastating consequences.

Natalia’s portrayal of Giselle was described as ‘technically and artistically supreme’ by the Telegraph and as ‘a revelation’ by the GuardianRead audience reactions to the opening night.

Giselle will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 1 September 2014. Buy your copy now.

      Hi Jean-Philippe,

      There are no plans to release DGV, we're afraid.

      Details of release confirmations can be found on these news pages when they're announced.

      Thanks,

      Chris
